try it from the bench if you want to feel it kick

THIS^ I can shoot mine all day standing off hand. Bench hurts after about 20 rounds........if you really want to feel that skull crusing butt plate dig into your own bits fire it from the prone unsupported position!

Fair point- I don't do much bench rest type shooting and never really thought of shooting it sitting down. But I'll give it a go.

I'm definitely going to take a pass on this experience!

Yeah......firing prone changes the body angle so the buttstock contacts juuuuust a little more of your collar bone! This is no big deal with a M4 or M16 but with a big bore bolt action rifle....especially one with a skull crusher plate like the mosin.......oof it hurts!
